Dust off your running shoes and get ready for the Diamond Ventures El Tour Adventure Run/Walk presented by The University of Arizona Medical Center. This is an event for people of all ages and abilities to enjoy fitness and fun in the 10K or 5K event.
Starting and finishing at the St. Gregory’s College Preparatory School on Craycroft south of River, participants will follow the tranquil multi-use Rillito River Path, avoiding motor vehicle traffic on the streets.
Proceeds from the race benefit Ben’s Bells Project and MyTeam Triumph. Ben’s Bells is a community art project that demonstrates and encourages kindness. MyTeam Triumph is an athlete ride along program created for children and adults with disabilities who would normally not be able to experience athletic events such as triathlons and marathons.
All finishers receive a unique, handmade Ben’s Bells medallion and fruit/snacks at the finish line. The El Conquistador award, a unique hand-made metal sculpture, will go to the top male and female finisher in the 5K and 10K events as well to the youngest male and female, the most distinguished male and female, and the Diamond in the Rough award (last finisher of 10K).
